Product Review: Mischka Just Kissed Lip & Cheek Stain

Sunday, January 15, 2017

     Before I learned how to use blush powders and creams on my cheeks, lip & cheek tints are my best friend. I was in college back then when a Thai brand of makeup sells cheap but effective products and one of them was my favorite cheek tint. I will not name it and I presume that if you're a cheek tint gal, you have tried it too.

     Anyhoo, late last year I decided to rekindle my love for lip & cheek tints when I saw photos of Korean stars on my Facebook feed. Most of them are sporting the no makeup look with only flushed cheeks, bitten lips, and natural looking brows. I want to try that look and good thing Mischka Derma Secrets now rebranded to Mischka Nature Essentials sent me two shades of their Just Kissed Lip & Cheek Stain. Will this product be a mainstay in my makeup essentials? Find out my thoughts below :)

Product Review: L'Oreal Color Riche La Palette Nude Photos and Swatches

Tuesday, July 26, 2016

     Hello dearies! I'm so excited to share with you my second eye shadow palette review to date. If you're a long time reader of this blog prolly you know that applying eye shadow/s is one of my weaknesses when it comes to makeup application. I only apply color on my lids if I really need to show a pop of color especially when attending events like weddings and debuts. Why until now I can't get the hang of it? I don't know how to blend properly. I only rely on diagrams when  I apply eye shadows, applying one or two colors to be exact.

     During the launch of L'Oreal Color Riche La Palette Nude eye shadows, I told myself that this is the right time to practice the art of eye shadow application because the eye shadow palettes are simply beautiful and wearable, perfect for beginners and for those who always go for that 'no makeup' makeup look. I'll practice how to blend using both palettes and once I'm getting the hang of it, I'll be sharing my FOTD (face of the day) here. But for now sharing with you photos, swatches, and my thoughts on L'Oreal Color Riche La Palette Nude in Rose and Beige below :)

What I like:

  • The packaging- it's in classy black and sleek case with full mirror.
  • The price- I find it very affordable because there are 10 shades in one palette. 
  • I can say that it's pretty pigmented even without primer.
  • It's easy to apply.
  • Blends smoothly on my eyelids.
  • The shades are perfect for every day makeup. 
  • The shades will suit Asian skin tone since its mostly composed of warm shades. I also like that it's a combination of two textures- matte and shimmery. 

What I don't like:

  • No shade names.
  • I find the brush so-so. 

Will I repurchase? Yes for my friends and relatives since I still have two palettes to use.

Recommendation:
     I give this a 5/5 rating. It's a good palette with 10 pigmented shades that I can sport everyday. The packaging is so nice and sturdy. Accidentally dropped it twice and the shadows are still intact. Hooray for full-sized mirror too!

     For less than, 1,000 php a sleek 10 shades eye shadow palette with pretty shades for smoky, nude and no makeup look, L'Oreal Color Riche La Palette in Rosé and Beige are beginners and budget conscious makeup aficionados best friend.

Have you tried L'Oreal Color Riche La Palette Nude eye shadow palettes? What's your favorite shade?
